Popes Princess Victoria is by Camus Brandy and out of Popes Nellys Princess and was put forward by Jimmy and Vikki Wood, Popes Farm, Preston.


Judge, J A McMillan said the Simmental was a tremendous example of the breed with a good top line and movement.


Victoria won reserve female at the National Simmental Show last year and was part of the winning pair at this year’s Three Counties Show.


Her February born bull calf, Popes Class Act, is her second calf at foot and also took reserve male champion on the day. This one is by Banwy T-Rex.


A Limousin heifer with heifer calf at foot from Paul Dawes, Kipperknowle Farm, Dinmore took the reserve spot.
